Greece´s hold on the European Championship title may have come to a disappointing early end but coach Otto Rehhagel is determined not to see his side exit the tournament with a whimper.

Greece were surprise champions four years ago in Portugal but the defence of their crown lasted just two matches at Euro 2008, with Rehhagel´s men losing 2-0 to Sweden and 1-0 to Russia in Group D. They complete their campaign against group winners Spain at the Stadion Salzburg Wals-Siezenheim but the match is effectively a dead rubber for both sides.

"It is my intention and I have told my team to play at 100%, not to hold back, but to give a finish worthy of our team," said Rehhagel, who is set to give some of his squad players a chance against the Spanish.
